Spotlight Breaking News- Jake Arrieta Throws A No Hitter! 

Tonight Chicago Cubs Starting Pitcher Jake Arrieta threw his second career no hitter as the Cubs beat the Reds 16-0! Arrieta also set a new record for the shortest time between starts to pitch a no hitter, in only 9 games! 

So much for a one hitter wonder, the reigning NL Cy Young has picked up right where he left off last season. Arrieta hasn’t allowed a run in 3 of his first 4 starts this season, good for a stingy 0.87 ERA! 

Of course when you’re getting 16 runs from your offense, it can only help. Arrieta accomplished his no-no in just 119 pitches, striking out 6 and walking 4 along the way. The Cubs continue to roll as they improved to an 11-4 record, good for a tie for the best record in the National League with the Washington Nationals. 

Now it’s just a shame we don’t get a Dominono this season!
